Srinagar, Aug 16: The Jammu and Kashmir Public Service Commission (JKPSC), an autonomous body tasked with recruiting gazetted officers in the state, is all set to use technology to cut the gestation period in selection processes and screenings.
According to Commission chairman Latief-uz-Zaman Deva, this is being done to overcome delays in selection processes due to age-old manual means of document checking and eligibility determination and repletion of the processes.
Further, admit cards and other communications would be sent to candidates through the electronic mode with the introduction of e-admit cards and e-summon letters. “This way, the old method of sending these through post, which would take weeks to reach the candidates, would be dispensed with,” the official stated.
The Commission might also conduct the various examinations online as is being done by recruiting agencies elsewhere to save time and pace up the process.
